South Dakota based 3D printing company, B9Creations has set its sights on lowering the barrier of entry to additive manufacturing for small businesses.
As a direct reaction to the common issue of high start up costs for new businesses when adopting advanced manufacturing technology, the company has introduced a new pricing point which they hope will enable small businesses to get on board with its affordable, high resolution 3D printer, the B9Creator.
Though the cost of 3D printing has reduced significantly – take for example the consumer market where XYZprinting recently announced its intention to release a sub $350 desktop printer – the demand for high resolution and speed often means that start-ups are priced out of the market.
The B9Creator uses DLP technology and from this month all printers will include a new Vat design that has been improved to prevent drips and spills and offer increased reliability and visibility.
B9Creations has grown its businesses substantially over the last few months with investments made to support the growth of the company and customer base. This growth has allowed the company to lower the price tag of its current machine meaning more businesses are in a position to implement this type of technology.
Founder and CEO, Mike Joyce commented: “Our customers are continually innovating to move the applications of 3D printing forward and we are investing to grow and accommodate them while ensuring quality, reliability, and making technology more affordable.”
The new price point will see assembled B9Creators drop from $5495 to $4595.
